7th European Algae Industry Summit

Date: 26th April 2017 - 27th April 2017 Location: Nice - France

ACI’s 7th Annual European Algae Industry Summit (formerly knows as “European Algae Biomass Conference”) will take place on 26th & 27th April 2017 in Nice, France.  The event will once again bring together senior executives from industry and academia to discuss the latest commercial and technical developments, challenges and research breakthroughs throughout the entire algae value chain.

Exclusive Site Visit: Camporosso APG facility

A day prior the conference, a limited number of summit delegates will have a unique opportunity to join an exclusive site visit to the APG facility in Camporosso (Ligurian Riviera, Italy).

Camporosso site is a fully integrated microalgae, energy and biorefinery plant, designed and developed to be an advanced sustainable production unit, energetically independent. Site planning criterium was to develop different technologies to obtain a flexible system suitable for the cultivation of several strains of microalgae maintaining sustainable concept.

There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated to the conference delegates on first come first served basis. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

As technology provider Subitec enables its customers the efficient and cost-saving cultivation of microalgae in both laboratory and industrial scale. The resulting algae biomass has a very wide range of applicability. Valuable substances can be gained from microalgae which could be applied in the pharma- and cosmetics industry. Moreover, the algae biomass is used for the production of dietary supplements and animal feed. The energetic utilization for the production of clean fuels, such as biodiesel, biogas and ethanol, is also possible on the basis of algae biomass.

Subitec supplies cultivation systems on the basis of three different sized FPA-reactors (6, 28 and 180 liter volumes). This makes the technology scalable and applicable in laboratories as well as in pilot and production plants. Subitec develops cultivation processes and delivers entire turn-key plants. Beyond that, Subitec is involved in numerous R&D projects for high value products, but also for the energetic utilization of algae biomass.

EUBIA, the European Biomass Industry Association, was established in 1996 as an international non-profit association in Brussels, Belgium. It groups together market forces, technology providers, and knowledge centres, all of them active in the field of biomass.

EUBIA’s main objective is to support the European biomass industries at all levels, promoting the use of biomass as an energy source, developing innovative bioenergy concepts and fostering international co-operation within the bioenergy field. EUBIA’s vision is a strong and reliable biomass sector able to contribute significantly to a global, sustainable energy system, preserving ecosystems equilibrium and ensuring economic development.

Given that biomass will have an important role to play in promoting sustainable development worldwide and the deployment of clean energies, EUBIA intends to contribute in strengthening European policies in this sector, protecting industrial interest, identifying new opportunities, promoting job creation and better environment conditions.



The European Biomass Research Network (EUBREN) is an initiative developed by the European Biomass Industry Association which consists of a selection of Universities and Research centers from the European Union member states. The initiative is the result of several year of experience in which EUBIA has dedicated its efforts to promote and support new industry oriented initiatives in cooperation with investors, small and large private enterprises, etc.

EUBREN will actively work on new “Research-for-industry” projects focused on the development of advanced technologies and strategies. New initiatives, activities and projects promoted by EUBREN will be of interest for the industry and should be oriented on an improvement of biobased products and bioenergy competitiveness in the European Market. EUBREN will therefore foster synergies among its members and with the industry in order not only to reach breaking research advances but also to easily commercialize them.

Furthermore, as the Network of leading academic centres in the field of biomass, EUBREN shall play an essential role as a disseminator of knowledge and good practice and making biomass research alive in public debate.
